On the famous photo of John Lennon flashing a peace sign at the Statue of Liberty: “This photo of John at the Statue of Liberty I think is one of my most important. We actually started talking about it in October, because the US government was trying to throw John out of the country. I think that his crime was that he talked about peace and the time of war and President Nixon was very afraid that he was going to galvanize support for peace in a time of war. I thought that Statue of Liberty was a symbol of welcome to America, and if John was out there by the statue it would be a statement that we should be welcoming this great artist to America and not trying to throw them out.

“Oddly enough it didn’t really get published a lot at the time. I think a lot of people were didn’t really want to get involved in the politics of the case but after he passed away it became one of my most popular pictures because, I think, people see John Lennon as a symbol of personal freedom similar to the Statue of Liberty.”
